All Are Welcome Here virtual event March 21, 2022

All are Welcome Here/Tous sont les Bienvenus Içi, March 21, 2022

The London & Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership and its partners invite you to join us virtually on Monday, March 21 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm for our annual All Are Welcome Here event in recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Together we will listen, learn and participate in interactive activities to better understand discrimination in our community and what we can do as individuals, organizations, and a community to combat it. In an effort to mobilize the global goal of eliminating racial discrimination, we must all take action locally, where we are. This event will equip us all to more effectively and actively make contributions to a more welcoming community here in London & Middlesex. After all, what unites us is stronger than what divides us.

More information and please register here.

Disclaimer: This event will cover sensitive topics. We will do everything possible to ensure an inclusive and safe space for all to participate.
